The Latest Santa



Over the years, Kate and I have amassed a few Santas.  

We picked this one up last weekend at The Fine Line in St. Charles. 

This is also the first official picture I've taken with my new Nikon D7200.

Too Dang Cute

Yesterday was the Breakfast with Santa event at Cantigny.  I've had the pleasure of photographing Santa and the kids since 2011 (I do the same with the Easter Bunny, but Santa's way more fun).  Every year, there are a few pictures that are just too dang cute.  These days, I usually don't post  pictures of the kids in public, but I REALLY wanted to post these and Mom gave me permission.

Don't melt while you're standing on the carpet or sitting on the furniture.






Merry Christmas!

Veterans Day MMXVII


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

The Old Alton Train Station



The former Alton Railroad station, later used by the Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad is built of brick, and is staffed. It is one of 3 Amtrak stations in the St. Louis metropolitan area; the other two are the Gateway Multimodal Transportation Center located in downtown St. Louis, and the Amtrak station in Kirkwood, Missouri. 
from Wikipedia

This is the station of my childhood when we lived in the Alton area.  We would take the Gulf, Mobile and Ohio to Chicago.

It is being replaced by a new station in Alton and this one will be torn down.  I'm bummed, but the politicians probably wanted a nice new station. And the conditions on the $1.00 sale of the building are so onerous that no one wants it.

Anyway, I've made this small album from one of my visits as a memorial.
